Spring Term PE: 

Tuesdays-Dance (No PE kits)

Wednesday-Gymnastics (PE Kits). 

The phonics taught at Waterside is delivered using 'Twinkl Phonics' - this is true for phases one through to four. Phase five and 6 are supplemented using additional materials. Children are encouraged to read at school regularly and the books they read from are always matched to their current phase of phonological learning. When the children have 'guided' sessions new sounds, words and more challenging texts are used as their are adults leading the sessions who can question and stretch appropriately.  


Homework will be handed out on a Thursday and returned on Tuesday. 

The gingerbread man part 2!

To finish our unit of writing, we created our own gingerbread man to match character from our story that we wrote in English.

The gingerbread man! 

In English we looked at the traditional tale the Gingerbread man and wrote our own version of it! Our experience day in English was to use our senses of taste, smell, feel, and see a gingerbread man. This really helped us to describe the gingerbread and brought our description of our character to life! It was scrumptious!

No pen days Wednesday! 

On no pen day Wednesday we did Drama in English. In Maths we looked at regrouping ones to tens using out base 10 to help us,. In the afternoon, we did Music. 

OS maps!

We've been exploring OS maps and their symbols. We had various maps and the symbols to match up. 

Regrouping, regrouping! 

In maths the children have been learning about regrouping. We identified and investigated together that a number can be regrouped in many different ways. 

Exploring the 7 continents! 

In Geography we explored the 7 continents in the world. We learnt that we belong in the Continent Europe.
